Talking about his form after winning the Test series against New Zealand, Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli said that it cannot be tied to the same way of getting out. On the other hand, about the South Africa tour, Kohli said that what will be the composition of the team for this tour will be discussed soon. Virat Kohli was also asked about the poor form of Ajinkya Rahane who was out of the Mumbai Test match and his consistent performance in Test cricket.
Regarding Rahane's poor form, Kohli said that I can't make any assessment about his form and what can I do, no one can do the same. Only a player knows what situation he is going through. Virat Kohli said that it is more important that Ajinkya Rahane feels safe in the team considering his past good record. We need to support him in the phase he is going through, especially when he has done well in the past.
Kohli further said that we do not have such an environment where the players think what will happen now. As a team, we don't give priority to such things. He further said that only the player knows what is happening in the team. A lot happens in the world outside the field, but we don't want those things to affect our game. Be it Rahane or anyone else, we support everyone in the team and don't make decisions based on what is happening in the outside world. This innings will help him grow not only as a batsman but also as a person.
Talking about his form, Kohli said that if mistakes are repeated, they need to be rectified. You have to focus on moving forward and remove the mistakes you keep repeating. You just have to believe that you can come out of a bad phase. On the other hand, about Mayank's innings, Kohli said that it takes passion to play such an innings and he does not lack it.
